Get Colourful in school

Help us raise funds for Evelina London’s Children’s Hospital by organising a Get Colourful dress down day at your school!

How to take part

  1. Choose any day this year that would suit your school calendar (like May, June or July when the sun's out)
  2. Register below telling us your school name. We will then send you a pack to help you prepare your day, such as a template letter for parents.
  3. Set up a Virgin Money Giving page LINK so that parents can donate online too
  4. Spread the word and ask pupils and teachers to Get Colourful by dressing up in their loudest, brightest clothes in exchange for a donation of £2. You could split the money £1 to Evelina London £1 to your school
  5. Want to raise more? Plan some other fundraising activities for the day like a cake sale, parents quiz or raffle.
  6. When the Get Colourful day is over, collect the donations and send them to our fundraising team. We will tell you how to do this in your pack.  

It’s easy and we'll support you every step of the way.
